Nottingham House Prices
The latest Hometrack house price report is in across the UK and Nottingham continues to grow.
In terms of average property price growth over the last 12 months, Nottingham ranks 5th in the UK at 6.5%. The cities that beat this are Manchester, Glasgow, Birmingham and Edinburgh in top place. The overall 20 city UK average is only a 5.4% increase, so this is great news for Nottingham.
House prices are also falling in three cities – Oxford, Cambridge and Aberdeen. This is a result of weakening demand, affordability and economic factors.
Demand is high as discounts in asking prices drop
The discount between asking prices and actual selling prices have narrowed. This is great news as it is a good sign of high property demand. Vendors are having to compromise less as they know they will be able to find a buyer who will pay the right price. In London, however, property price discounting is increasing. The average discount across most of England was 2.9% in 2017.
2018 is off to a great start for sellers as Rightmove have reported a 9% average increase in property views on the same period last year. It would seem now is a great time to market your property for sale.
